Sailor 1911 Fountain Pen - King of Pens - Iro-Miyabi Suou (Bespoke Dealer Exclusive)

SKU: SR_10-1584-430

Regular price $1,600.00

A traditional and noble color much favoured by Heian aristocracy, the Suou finesse pen by Sailor!

The traditional lacquer technique “Ishime-nuri” enables its surface to be roughened to represent the appearance of stones. The pen is also fitted with Sailor’s original supersized 21K nib in Medium and Broad nib widths.

The lacquering was developed in the Nara and Heian era as a symbol of wealth among the aristocracy and as a symbol of gods and Buddha.

No returns/exchanges on this unique limited edition pen.

Sailor has made a new design for their nibs. The pens which are produced from January 2022 onwards will have the new-design nib. The difference between the old nib and the new nib:

  1. New nib does not have '1911' engraved on it
  2. New design of the anchor
  3. New design of the "SAILOR" engraving below the anchor
  4. The 'H' letter (abbreviation of 'Hard') is removed from the nib size indicator on the left side of the new nib 

Depending on the availability of our stock, you may receive the old Sailor nib design or the new Sailor nib.
